This is unthinkable injustice! The people responsible should be lynched in public!

THE DOOR IS CLOSSED! We can knock the door, we can break the door, or even we can blaze the whole building. But, if we really want a dignified way to ‘Labor dignity’, we would need the door open, which could be open, either from the inside, or by the key. Everyone behind the doors is not cruel, so let us find those kind hearted ones to get along with us. Then they will either open the door from inside, (by convincing at equal level) or they would have key to open the door.

Sadly factories in Pakistan are kingdoms unto themselves. They are concentration camps where workers are denied their basic rights enshrined in the constitution, in country's labour law and in the international convention. Even a proper appointment letter is more often than not a favour, and not a rule, and those who are not employed as per the regulations have no claim to privileges, not even compensation in accident cases. Trade unions are a luxury which can hurt the owners' interests....

Sadly factories in Pakistan are kingdoms unto themselves. They are concentration camps where workers are denied their basic rights enshrined in the constitution, in country's labour law and in the international convention.

Trade unions are a luxury which can hurt the owners' interests. The government promises to reinvigorate them but it is either too meek or too overwhelmed by petty profits to even try and implement the existing law. The presence of unions could have ensured better working conditions--more fire exits at least--for those lost forever in the industrial holes in Karachi and Lahore But then recent anti-terrorism cases against workers in Faisalabad and Karachi spell out just how difficult it is to even demand something as basic as union. This betrays a flawed policy and must change. Organised , active unions are the first and vital defence against greedy employers and their equal selfish partners in government. Allowed enabling space, these organised workers could ultimately provide the country with the forward looking front so desperately needed.
